Dear Participants,

We are excited to be back for the 2020 Youth America Grand Prix ballet competition semi-final in Cattolica, Italy. We are proud to be able to present performance and training opportunities for dancers from the greater Cattolica area, looking to compete in classical and contemporary dance performance, take master classes and become eligible to participate in the New York City Finals. We wish you the best of luck this season!
